    disassembly mat

    My photo shows a 1949 dated plastic disassembly mat used for training. Interesting to note the lock bar rear sight which never was replaced completely. There are many variations of the disassembly mat and for a number of weapons too

    I always thought they were neat for trainee use. We never had any such thing...

    What is really interesting is that the later post WW2 disassembly mat did not show the parts for the trigger housing as disassembly by the soldier was
    no longer authorized same thing on the M14icon rifle, Only the armorer could disassemble the trigger housings

    UKicon didn't allow stripping of the FN rifle trigger mech but we insisted on it. We had no issues...same sort of thing.

    Some G.I.'s could take the trigger housing apart and put it back together while others just brought a handful of parts to the Supply Sgt.

    One thing that I did observe was the blindfolded disassembly and re-assembly of the M1icon rifle into the main groups.

    My favorite trick was to remove and re-install the M1 rifle firing pin without taking the rifle apart. I used the M10 tool
